Re: Hemming Clips - Available in Switzerland?

When you say small - are you talking about Wonderclips or the generic form thereof, plastic 'sprung' clips about a centimeter or two long? For example:

Or hemming clips, which are about 3.5 inches (7-8cm) long, for example:

This is the centimeter/inch version that I'd like to have but is not shippable here.

An example of the clips shippable here are:

Wonder Clips and the like are fairly easy to find here, but I hadn't seen any of the hemming clips in Switzerland. Our local Manor does not have them - but then, the sewing corner of the local Manor is a sad place with little stock. I'm guessing they are winding it down.

FYI for those making facemasks - Wonder Clips are a godsend, as you can lay out or work the fabric without pins - and pin holes.
Yep, I meant wonderclips. Got them at Tchibo for a few francs. Manor had them too and a double size ones in the same package. Maybe Manor will have them online - have a look. I saw mine cca 3mo ago in a small peripheral Manor.

I don't use your hemming clips, though can imagine people must like those. They do look great. I hem by pre-stitching, so I can gauge the length precisely and try the clothes on on me and others. I learned early enough that pairing lengths works 50/50, people always have differences in their own arms/legs/even boobs sizes. Straight and boring geometrical cuts I'd just clip with my wonder thingies, vite fait.

But prestitching and lotsa ironing while still prestitched is the old school way, I kinda like it so I keep it that way. If I see hemming clips, I'll try them.
